Seminar on Right to Reside and Habitual Residency

20 November 2014, Dundalk.

The Border People project hosted a morning seminar in Dundalk, Co. Louth.

The event focussed on the UK and Irish Right to Reside and Habitual Residency Conditions.

Jean Plummer from the Department of Social Protection and Lee Hatton from the Law Centre NI explained the systems in Ireland and Northern Ireland. They highlighted the commonalities and differences between the jurisdictions.

Annmarie O’Kane Border People project manager with the Centre for Cross Border Studies gave a back ground to the Information Service and the need to ensure that citizens living and working across the border have access to high quality citizens advice when they present to their local advice office with cross-border queries.

The event was aimed at those working in information providing organisations in both jurisdictions.
